Good story about errors cropping up because the developer wasn’t in touch with what his users were using.

Like most folks in the developer community, it’s been years since I last used Internet Explorer as my daily browser. Oh sure, we all keep copies around for web development work, but Firefox, Chrome, and Safari now rule the web roost. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the Blurity userbase.


Dang. People would just be trying to remove the blur from their blurry photos , and they’d get smacked in the face with messages that my software would destroy their computers.

The moral of the story is, stay in touch with what your users are using and use it too. I luck out in that almost all of my traffic to this site is using modern web browsers so I don’t have to test in old stuff like IE 7.
